Best Green Smoothie EVER

One of the advantages of being the first one to post one our brand spankin' new blog is that I know my post will soon be overshadowed by others. Others not showcasing a dirty window AND a filthy windowsill. Yikes - that's not something I focus in on very often. Clearly.

But let me tell you that, despite the pathetic photography, this is one of the most delicious and frequently-made things in my kitchen. I can't take credit for the recipe - it's from one of my favorite vegan blogs Oh She Glows - but I can take credit for making it several times a week and thanking my lucky stars there's such a great way to up my greens intake. Painlessly.

Green Monster

(Makes 1 serving)

1 c. almond milk (or milk of your choice)
1 Tbsp. chia seeds (omit these if you must, but they're a great energy boost - or use flax seeds)
1 Tbsp. peanut butter
2 large handfuls spinach
1 very ripe, frozen banana
ice cubes

Put in blender in order listed, minus the ice. Blend well. Add ice (I use about 10 ice cubes), blend again, and serve. Makes about 2 cups.


  1. Where can you find chia/flax seeds?

    1. I get them in bulk at Smith's or Whole Foods. If you can't find them near you, you can easily order some online. But they're getting to be more common - you may even check Walmart!
